Hi,
I have a UNIX application which runs on Apache/Tomcat. It needs query the database and store the results in an MS Excel file (.xls), which can be opened from MS Windows environment later.
Anyone knows how to create a .xls file from a UNIX web server?
Thanks in advance!

check out www.linar.com . I have used it in my project for the same excel stuff.
It has a Java-COM bridge though my server was running on NT.
they have a solution for your problem i guess using MS DCOM.
